Outpatient Rehabilitation Services

Intensive-Outpatient-Program-1The Olympia House Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers outpatient rehabilitation services for adults with substance abuse problems. With a focus on wellness and recovery in all aspects of one’s life, Olympia House IOP is able to support people in their journey to sobriety by providing individuals with an ongoing structure, treatment, group support, and a safe space to process daily struggles related to life and addiction.

The IOP is for both residents who complete our residential treatment program and for those who have not been to Olympia House before.

The program runs three days a week (currently Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am until 12pm) and includes random drug and alcohol testing.

The program is designed to be completed over eight weeks, depending on individual needs and insurance requirements. It includes 9 hours of group counseling and 1 hour of individual counseling per week, random drug and alcohol testing, and monthly family support meetings.

The intensive outpatient program provides a space for participants to process current feelings and struggles, learn coping skills to prevent relapse, and use cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy practices to identify, counteract, manage and regulate distorted thoughts and overwhelming emotions.

Olympia House IOP offers a variety of different treatment modalities and peer support groups. The process begins with an initial clinical assessment that includes both substance abuse and mental health issues. As the individual works with staff in the development of their unique treatment plan, the specific treatment goals are identified.

Rehabilitation Groups

Process Group

A process group is a mutual aid group in essence. It focuses on sharing stories, relating to the emotions of others in recovery, and providing emotional support.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an evidence-based treatment that assists people in changing their behaviors by reframing their thoughts. It helps people struggling with addiction to manage impulsive self-destructive behaviors, overwhelming emotions, and negative, distorted thought patterns.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a form of therapy that assists people in letting go of extreme thoughts and emotions and solving problems more effectively. The word “dialectical” refers to the concept that two ideas can be true at the same time.

Life Skills

Learning and practicing life skills helps people develop the self-control and personal discipline needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol.
